Who says you’ve got to spend mindlessly booking a professional hairstylist for all your wedding functions? If you’re on a tight budget, you can very well cut down on that expense by DIY-ing your hair at home (at least for smaller functions like Pooja, Mehendi or Haldi). Moreover, you sure don’t want to spend all of your time in the salon getting your hair primped and puffed, so it’s better you try your hands at it and turn into your own hairstylist.

And to give you just the right kind of inspiration, we have listed some super quick and easy-peasy hairstyles that you can DIY at home. Believe us, they are exquisitely beautiful and definitely worth a try. So, without second thoughts, scroll down and check them out!

Pro Tip: While doing any kind of hairstyle, loosely curl your hair from the ends to give your hair more texture and enhancement.

Quickest Messy Bun

If you have a thing for messy buns and traditional hairdos, this hairstyle is definitely the one you should pick for a casual home function. It is so simple and easy to do that it won't take you more than 3 to 4 minutes to get it done with (which means more time for Masti and Naach-Gaana).

Rope-Braided Side Bun

Side buns never go out of style. They are evergreen and look extremely beautiful. And this super-new rope-braided side bun that we spotted off late is just the one you need to try on your Sangeet ceremony. To make this side bun, you first have to side part your hair, braid the side-parted hair all the way till the bottom and then twirl them in a side bun.

Woven Headband Braid

French braids are done to death. So, if you really want to braid ‘em hair on your Haldi ceremony try something uncommon and out of the box like this woven headband braid. It’s elegant, quirky and ultra-mod. And being the voguish bride that you are, you simply can’t give this one a miss. Go, get started!

Supplies Reqd.: Rattail comb, Hair elastics, Hairband, Flat Iron, Hairspray.

Easy-Peasy Curls

When you can’t think of anything else, just pull out your hair curler and get set curl! Curly hair looks great with anything and everything. Whether you plan to wear an Indo-western dress or a lehenga, curls can be teamed with either of them without killing too much of your time. But make sure you always use a heat resistant before you begin curling your hair.
